Export and import trade classifications 22 



INTRODUCTION 

This booklet provides detailed descriptions of each of the 
industry and export and import trade classification cate- 
gories to be used in completing BEA's surveys of direct 
investment. Industry classifications described in the first 
part of this booklet (page 1), are used to determine the 
type of business conducted by the entity being reported. 
Export and import trade classifications, described in the 
second part of this booklet (page 22), are used to classify, 
by product, U.S. merchandise exports and imports.

PART I - INDUSTRY CLASSIFICATIONS 



The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) industry classifications 
defined below are to be used when completing the industry 
classification items in the reports used in the Bureau's surveys of 
direct investment. These classifications, and their respective code 
numbers, were adapted from the ENTERPRISE STANDARD 
INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION MANUAL, 1974, which sets 
forth an all-inclusive industry classification system for companies, 
and which in turn is related to the STANDARD INDUSTRIAL 
CLASSIFICATION MANUAL, 1972 (hereinafter referred to as 
"1972 SIC"), which sets forth an all inclusive industry classification 
system for the individual establishments of an enterprise.* 

Note that there may be slight differences between a given BEA 
classification and the corresponding 1972 SIC classification, or a 
BEA classification may be a combination of several 1972 SIC 
classifications. For the convenience of those U.S. Reporters familiar 
with the 1972 SIC, the 1972 SIC code or codes which correspond to 
a given BEA classification are indicated at the top of the description 
of each BEA classification. There is not always a one-to-one 
relationship between the two industry classification systems. There- 
fore, when completing the industry classification items in the 
reports, be sure to consult the definitions of the BEA industry 
classifications given below. 

There are two combinations of activities which need clarification - 

1 . Extraction and refining of petroleum, by the same entity, should 
always be classified in BEA code 291 ("Integrated petroleum 



refining and extraction"); these activities should NOT be split 
between BEA code 133 ("Crude petroleum extraction and 
natural gas") and BEA code 292 ("Petroleum refining without 
extraction"), when performed by the same entity. 

2. Wholesale marketing of its own products by an entity primarily 
engaged in production does not constitute "Wholesale trade." 
For example, if an entity manufactures turbines and sells them 
to industrial users, its sales should be classified in BEA code 351 
(manufacturing of "Engines and turbines") and not in BEA code 
508 (wholesaling of "Machinery, equipment, and supplies, 
except farm and garden machinery and equipment"). If, on the 
other hand, an entity sells turbines produced by others, its sales 
should be classified in BEA code 508. To the extent that an 
entity manufactures and sells its own turbines AND sells turbines 
produced by others, its sales would be split between BEA code 
351 and BEA code 508. 



The titles of some BEA industry classifications, by themselves, may 
be insufficient when attempting to classify certain activities. Consult 
the more detailed descriptions provided below to be sure of the 
correct classification. To assist in classification, a "NOTE" may be 
given after the definition of some BEA codes. Such notes list the 
BEA code for closely related activities which are NOT included in 
the classification being defined, but are included in some other 
classification.

CONSTRUCTION 

Construction 

(1972 SIC major groups 15, 16, and 17) 

Three broad types of construction activity are covered: 

1. Building construction by general contractors or operative 
builders primarily engaged in the construction of dwellings, 
industrial buildings and warehouses, stores, and other 
projects of a similar nature 

2. General construction in fields other than buildings, often 
referred to as heavy construction, including construction of 
highways, bridges and tunnels, docks and piers, pipe lines, 
communication and power lines, and other similar projects 

3. Construction by special trade contractors engaged in 
specialized construction activities, such as plumbing, 
painting, electrical work, masonry, carpentry, etc. Con- 
struction includes new work, additions, alterations, 
repairs, improvements, and maintenance. Construction 
work performed by a firm primarily engaged in some 
business other than construction, for its own account and 
use, and by its own employees (force account construction) 
is not included in this industry, but classified according to 
the principal activity normally carried on by the firm. 

NOTE: Investment builders who build structures on their 
own account for rental are classified in BEA code 650. 



MANUFACTURING 

Manufacturing includes the mechanical or chemical trans- 
formation of materials or substances into new products, 
such as, the assembly of component parts into manufac- 
tured products and the blending of materials to make such 
items as lubricating oils, plastics, resins, and liquors. 

The materials processed through manufacturing include 
products of agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining and 
quarrying, as well as products previously manufactured by 
other firms. The new products may be "finished" in the 
sense that they are ready for utilization or consumption, of 
"semi-finished" to become raw materials for firms engaged 
in further manufacturing. 

Some borderline cases CLASSIFIED IN MANU- 
FACTURING ARE: 

Milk bottling and pasteurizing 

Fresh fish packaging 

Apparel jobbing 

Publishing 

Ready-mix concrete production 

Leather converting 

Logging 

Wood preserving 

Electroplating, plating, heat treating of metal, and polishing 
for the trade 

Fabricating signs and advertising displays 

Various service industries to the manufacturing trade, such 
as typesetting, engraving, plate printing, and preparing 
electrotype and stereotype plates

PART II - EXPORT AND IMPORT TRADE CLASSIFICATIONS 



The BEA export and import trade classifications are to be used in classifying U.S. 
merchandise exports and imports, by commodity, in the merchandise trade section 
of the reports. The BEA classifications are adapted from the Standard International 
Trade Classification, Revised (United Nations Statistical Papers, Series M, No. 34, 
1961), hereinafter referred to as "the SITC." For each BEA classification described 
below, the equivalent one-, two-, or three-digit SITC code, or combination thereof, 
is given for the convenience of those U.S. Reporters who are familiar with the SITC. 

It should be noted that the BEA export and import trade classifications are 
PRODUCT classifications used only in classifying merchandise trade flows; they 
should be carefully distinguished from the BEA INDUSTRY classifications 
contained in the first part of this booklet which are used in determining the major 
industrial activity of the entity being reported.
